, our energy, our patience, our money, our space to try to make a way for you to be successful, but we all feel like we're meeting a wall with you? >> i think school, it ain't nothing but adding on to my problems. it's a big situation right now with my son. and that situation, it's not making me happy. >> all i know about sparkle's background is what she first shared in class. she shared that she had a baby. she's from new orleans. moving from new orleans to houston after hurricane katrina was really traumatic. and then her mom died, and she lived with family. and slowly throughout the year it's become, "now i live just with friends, i sleep on their couch, i sleep on their floor." and apparently, somewhere between all of this, now her son has been taken away from her as well. even if a quarter of that is true, it's a devastating reality for, you know, a kid in high school. the last time i even really seen you besides yesterday was about two weeks ago. >> if i can't do it, then i can't do it. i'm one person trying to do a whole bunch of million other things. >> what about if i say to y

shotgun approach, a .22 approach. when it comes in and stops with all of its energy right at the prostate and doesn't go on through the body, and causing damage to other inner organs. i was able to avoid having surgery, having a catheter for 2 to 3 weeks, having incontinence and impotence. it's the most effective thing on earth. the cost of a proton facility can run up to $150 million, so it is more expensive to build the facility than others, but it really comes down to the cost to the individual patient. i had to sign papers that i'd be responsible for all the costs. it's between 70,000 and 200,000. in american healthcare, the bar to adapt new technology has been relatively low. the bar really is that it's not harmful or not worse, not that it necessarily needs to be better. and it may be better, but when something costs that much, one would truly like to know it's better if society is going to bear the cost. it has saved my life. i have the satisfaction in my mind that i don't have cancer. in fact, i think of getting all my affairs in order... i bought a new suit. i'm going to

energy. i'actually have a hard time keeping up with peter. when i see things like that, and i remember the way patients were before the surgery, it's like witnessing a miracle, because you see they really do have their lives back. it's quite something to witness. >> narrator: but for people with parkinson's, the hope engendered by stories like peter sauer's proved short-lived. a year after peter's procedure, a series of fetal transplants at the university of colorado, utilizing a different surgical technique than the halifax team, yielded deeply disappointing results. while some recipients showed modest improvement, others wound far worse, unable to even control their own bodies. >> even though some patients recovered, some patients recovered too much. in other words, they started to show excessive movements rather than just enough. so instead of being helped, they were actually made worse. >> narrator: it was a demoralizing setback, and, despite the halifax success, served to largely freeze the field of fetal transplants in its place. >> there's an old saying in science that

looking for a dresser or looking for a secretary or whatever. man #2: it's a lot of energy. it's what a flea market should be -- a lot of color, a lot of flavor, a lot of mixture of everything. woman: well, i come because of the variety. i mean, you got clothes, you got jewelry, you got furniture, you have everything, and then you run into people you haven't seen in a long time because this is a meeting place. sebak: you have the coolest stuff. thank you. what do you call this? retro. 1950s. and hawaii-ana, with the tikis down here. i like old things. i'm attracted to basically things from the '30s, basically '40s. i'm also an artist, a sculptor. you name it, i can make it. this market has always attracted a lot of artists and craftspeople, even photographers. man: i've been able to sell a lot more than any gallery's ever sold for me, or any other -- any other way i've ever tried, and i've been at it for 15 years, so... this is the best spot i've ever found. man #2: i know there are people here from africa, from pakistan, from india, from america, and they all know something about the
